Great teaching tool.

That Is amazing. This is the reason I want to learn programing so I can make fun programs like these for people. Thanks for sharing and great job!

Nice work (as I've already said in email). The start slightly put me off - if you're listening to an English language video, the translation feature is a distraction, and "GUI" is a bit of jargon that programming newbies might not know. But great all the same!

This was an excellent video and I look forward to more of them...



Awesome! Thanks I will try it

This is phenomenal! My older son is a week short of 9, and he was able to program Reeborg out of a maze on the second night he used RUR-PLE. I had no problem at all installing Python 2.5, wxPython, and RUR-PLE on WinXP. It just works. (Just unzip the RUR-PLE zip file, double-click on RUR-PLE, and it runs just fine.)

HI, I like the idea but I cannot get it to work on WinXP with Python 2.5 and latest wxPython libraries .... any time I press a key I get an error :-(

I really want to try rur-ple but I don't know how to install it. I have python 2.5 and wxpython and I get nothing when I try the included webpage. a video on how to install it on windows machines and linux machines (I run both) would be great.

Nice but very unstable on Ubuntu. Uncountable freezes.

Bonjour André, I used RUR-PLE for teaching 10 year old kids today. The kids loved it !

Amazing teaching tool! Well done!

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.
